I finally was able to get on the tanita again this morning, and my body fat has gone from 36.7% a little over 3 weeks ago to 34.2% today! And 8 of the 10 pounds that I've lost are fat! Yea!
Corgan has been to the gym daycare 3 times and has done pretty well. The first time that he went was with Annabelle and it was at night. They said that he was doing really well until some older kid ran a very noisy truck right behind him and scared the crap out of him. After that he screamed so much that they were afraid he was going to hyperventilate, so they had to call us to come get him. I was afraid he was going to be terrified to go into the room again, but since then I've taken him two mornings and he's done really well each time. They said he'd whimper a little every once in a while, but he's doing really good! That makes me feel so good because I was afraid he was going to be the end of my working out during the day.
I tried yoga again this morning, and verified that it's not for me. I know it has lots of benefits and I could definitely be more flexible and relaxed, but I'm just too impatient for it. The class was 75 minutes long, and about 15 minutes into it I was wishing that I'd picked a spot closer to the door so that I could slip out. There were definitely a few moves that made my muscles burn, but no more than spending a minute or so on a weight machine would. I felt like I was wasting my time not burning enough calories because I wasn't sweating (and no, I don't think that doing it in a 100+ degree room would make me like it better) and getting a good aerobic exercise. I'm not knockin' yoga because I know there are many people who love it and swear by it, but I'm the type of person who would rather be "relaxing" on a treadmill or elliptical machine. We have a video of me at a ballet dance recital as a 5 year old (or somewhere around that age) and while everyone else is slowly doing the "positions" and stretches the way that they are supposed to be doing them, I'm doing them as quickly as possible so that I can just get it over with (then I stood there looking at my fingernails or something waiting for everyone else to finish). I think that "go-go-go!" thing is just a part of my personality, and yoga doesn't fit the mold for me. I still plan to try pilates sometime, but have a feeling that I'll feel the same way about it. (Side note: According to my wii fit I have pretty darn good balance and am really good at the balance part of yoga. I was very surprised to find that out.)
